My first paid project

This is the first time I have actually been paid to sit down and do a scrapbook.  Please let me know what you think.  I am always the most critical of my work, but sometimes overly critical.  This is just a few of the pages I have created.

This page I stitched done the right side with variegated floss.  I cut out the word engagement from Calligraphy at 2" I believe. And yes it is black and white.

For this page I copied the marriage licsense and crinkled it.  I rubbed distress inks on the crinkles then ironed.  I took a lighter and burned it in various spots.

These two pages are part of four.  I cut the letters from Tie the Knot at 2" I think.

This is a three page spread but only posted two.  I used Storybook for the letters and butterfly corners.

I didn't do much to this just layered it to pop the picture.
Again another simple page.  Added a few embellishments and a couple mats.

I actually colored the background paper with a cosmetic sponge and Cyan Colorbox ink.  Still working on this page but liked the effect.

Two page layout.  I cut the top picture and placed perfectly together so it looks like one big page.  Inked the edge of the flower paper.

I used wrapping paper for the background and Storybook for the letters cut at 2".

Thanks for looking.  Hope you enjoyed what you saw.
